Greetings to all my fellow pet parents! While winter is just around the corner, we're already feeling the cold fronts and scouting for places to take our little ones. But what about our dogs or cats? They have needs too, right?

After some research, I've found some incredible places inside and outside of Maine that are more than delighted to accommodate you and your furry friends, ensuring a pleasant experience for both parent and pup!

We love our pets so much. I myself have a black cat named Charlie Benedict Cumberbatch, and he gives me consistent companionship and offers a constant presence in our family that I will never take for granted.

I am sure you feel the same way for your special furry baby, so much so that you want to adventure out in Maine with them by your side to experience pet-friendly spots!

From pet shops to pubs with dog-friendly patios, these places are among my favorites! Let's highlight a couple spots before we get to the full list below!

Bark Harbor is a must-visit for you and your furry friend. This is a super cozy little pet boutique that offers a collars, leashes, toys, treats, and unique items for cats. And they are all about Maine! They offer a Maine-themed collection with lobster print accessories and seasonal clothing to keep your dog warm during those cold Maine months. They also have an adorable bakery with dog-shaped biscuits, happy birthday bones, and even dog-friendly macaroons!

Here's an option if you'd like to have some adult fun but also want to bring your fluffy friend. Winterport Winery in Winterport, Maine, is the perfect place if you'd like to booze up a bit but don't want to leave the dog behind. They are pup-friendly, and as long as your dog is well-behaved and leashed, you are good to go! This is a pretty classy joint for you and your dog to sit back on the porch and relax, or maybe take a nice cozy nap on the warm floor by your feet!
